Abstract

There have been several efforts to examine the psychological experiences of patients undergoing quarantine/self-isolation over the years, not only in the context of COVID-19. Some mental health concerns found to be prevalent among such people are depressed mood, emotional disturbances, increased levels of stress, irritability, insomnia, post-traumatic stress symptoms, anger, and emotional exhaustion. Of these, depressed mood and irritability stand out as especially common concerns. Others include frustration due to uncertainty and lack of information about health and recovery, and the possibility of infecting others.
